It was sad news I received this morning, via an email from my friends at TIRR Rescue. My buddy Tucker, a big ol' boy I fell in love with the first time I saw him, had passed away in the night.
Tucker was one of the biggest Ridgebacks I had ever seen. His paws were like the size of my fist. But he was gentle and tolerant, being a supreme "leaner", enough so as to almost knock you off balance if you didn't realize what he was doing. He enjoyed people, and got on well with every other dog I ever saw him with.

Tucker, King of Chairs. I will miss you, big guy. Say hi to Charlie for me, ok?
